she lowered her lashes until they almost cuddled her cheeks.
When it comes to my makeup, I love a bit of drama. Which is why I adore false eyelashes. (I only wish I was better at putting them on!)
False eyelashes have been applied since the beginning of the 20th century. They were first used in the 1916 film, "Intolerance." The director wanted actress Seena Owen to have lashes that brushed her cheeks, in order to make her eyes appear bigger. They were originally created by a wig maker, who wove human hair through gauze. This was then gummed to Seena Owen's eyelids.
So there you have it - a brief history of false eyelashes! I personally just love the drama and fullness they add. Perfect for a night out! I am also so in love with the crazy dramatic lashes! They look beautiful in photographs!
What do you think of false eyelashes? Do you ever wear them?
